"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them."
Henry David Thoreau

"I fell in love the way you fall asleep; slowly, and then all at once."
John Green

These eyes tell lies.
Hope blinds me in the presence of you;
It fills me,
Until I can no longer
Accurately see.
Yes, you hid behind the hope
I so gratefully drank.
I laid my trust by your feet,
Naively, Ignorantly, Stupidly.

Big mistake.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

I acn connect. I have done this to someone I had trusted so much, and might still be doing, but I can't help but do it. Because I love that person so much, and I don't mean loving romantically. The person is one of my parents, my parents are divorced. I loev this. You are such a talented person and writer, that you leave me in awe. Thank you for sharing this!

Different, you made me think of several eyes that look sweet but are actually devious. My favorite part was the last five words.

More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
